Managing the stress of the unexpected: fertility issues
Hey there! Welcome to fix your focus.
In this podcast episode, we will talk about managing stress in unexpected situations. Our focus in this session will be around fertility issues and the big tips to overcome this challenging situation.
Our special guest is Dr. Loree Johnson a licensed marriage and family therapist, with more than 25 years of experience as a clinician-educator and clinical supervisor.
She helps her clients navigate uncertainty on relationships, fertility journeys, loss of a pregnancy, among others. Also, helps them strengthen their relationships by combining her clinical background, as well as her own personal experience into a holistic therapeutic approach.
She started working with couples and realized that many of their issues going around them were about fertility and reproductive health, so this became her focus. Besides, she went through her own fertility journey so she started seeing this from a different perspective.
